Mama’s Kabab is an Armenian restaurant in Stanton. Armenian food is what draws in the crowds: heaps of rice alongside succulent kebabs or said meat wrapped inside pita bread, balanced with tahini sauce and pickled beets. Crunchy kibbe and greasy sojouk make great finger foods; the foul (fava beans in lemon juice and spices) is all about the hearty tart. Forgo the customary hummus and babaghanoush in favor of spreads you’re only getting here: mohamarra, a mild, walnut-based salsa enlivened with toasted pita crumbs is the hot sauce you never knew you needed. Even better is jajek, a strong cucumber yogurt that has a dusting of dried mint to tame the jajek’s tang.
